In 1992, Gordon launches Finest Gold, a strong and refined beer with a typically Scottish character, combining the forces of charm and persuasion. Its origins and its strength (10% degrees of alcohol) give it its smooth taste and explosive nature. The taste of this incomparable beer is nevertheless entirely suited to the new demand of its many enthusiasts. Gordon Finest Gold is today available in 33 cl and 50 cl cans.

Beer pours clear gold with a medium, white head. Dusty grain and dough in the aroma. Sweet cereal, sugar and alcohol.

An insult to beer with a high percentage. It is a Pilsener with the dullest aroma and the most absurd alcohol percentage which never returns in it’s taste (apart from it being alcoholic). Don’t be bothered to buy this unless your a (tasteless) alcoholic.

thirstyrabbit (1460) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle. Clear bright golden body, medium to small head. Aroma has sweet malt, honey-like hoppiness and only some light booze. Quite sweet malty taste with more honey, some creamy toffee and medium hoppiness. I am drinking this properly cooled so the alcohol in it is not sharp at all and the sweetness is toned down too. For the high alcohol content it’s a pretty easily drinkable pale beer. As I said, this needs to be properly cooled.

Salmaneser (74) - BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home. Clear golden yellow beer with white head. Grassy, herbal aroma, with the sweet smell of caramel and honey. Taste starts off sweet, with a bit of a watery palate. Afterwards, the bitterness joins in and the palate gets lively. Decent beer.

Bright blond beer with a white head, little carbonation. Taste is sweet, fruity, bitter, honey and wheat. Sweet alcohol aftertaste, very tasty strong beer.

huineman (423) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2015
Intense golden hue. White head, swiftly disappearing. Aroma is porridge, iron, honey and wheat flour. Powerful sweet start. Full body. Bitter ending. Long sweet aftertaste with hints of honey. Very interesting.
